About this listing
If you like the privacy and you want to enjoy the culture and natural environment of the Cusco, we offer you per days or weeks our two units located in the historical quarter of San Blas.
We are lucky to be a peaceful oasis in the heart of Cusco. We are just 10 minutes walk distance from the Plaza de Armas and if you're tired, any taxi could get you to the house. After a day of sightseeing, you'll be happy to arrive to a garden with fresh air, and where the only thing you'll listen will be relaxing birds sounds.
In Quecha, Kusiy means happiness. This charming studio is thought to lodge a person or a couple in a space carefully designed to be comfortable. Decorated with indigenous textiles, wooden furniture and crafts, the department is provided with a double bed, a table with two chairs and a kitchenette equipped to prepare breakfasts or light meals. The unti has cable tv, internet conection and a electric heater.
Our stay was absolutely wonderful! It was the perfect place to relax and regroup after completing our trek to Machupicchu. The studio was exactly as advertised, very clean and quiet, and a very comfortable bed. Our host was also extremely responsive to all our questions, and even made sure her parents would be there to let us in for our late arrival. I recommend this San Blas hideaway for a great change of pace in Cusco!
What a wonderful place to stay in Cusco! This lovely little home is located in San Blas, one of Cusco's most exciting and safe and fun neighborhoods. Even if you don't stay in San Blas, you will want to spend time here. The street it's on is a small, winding, cobblestone street that you will love walking up and down each day. It's a short walk to San Blas square where delicious coffee awaits you at the Meeting Place, and just about a ten minute walk to the Plaza De Armas. Very cozy, hot shower, beautiful garden to escape to when the city feels busy. Just a wonderful place.
Our hosts took care of our baggage while we were on the Incan trail, and delivered us some ginger/limon hot tea when we came back sick from the hike. Could not have had a nicer time. We stayed in the larger and smaller unit and found both to be equally charming and cozy. We highly recommend this home!
Cusco is a great place to visit and we would highly recommend staying here if you would like your own retreat. All amenities and features of the place are as described and the host a very accommodating! The only negative aspect is that you have to walk up hill about 10 minutes from the Plaza de Armas to get here. We enjoyed the hike but if you don't like walking up narrow streets/stairs it could be an issue.
Altamente recomendado!! Súper céntrico. El apartamento es mejor de lo que se ve en las fotos. Limpio, ordenado y bonito. Además están las atenciones de Irene y su esposo, los padres de Ñawin, que nos hicieron sentir como en casa. Nuestra estadía en Cusco fue mejor de lo que esperábamos gracias a Irene y este espacio.
Nawin Cusco was a perfect refuge for us during our five days in Cusco. Irene and her husband built the home themselves over 30+ years using traditional building techniques and every detail has received their creativity and attention. There are two rental units accessed from a private garden in a very picturesque part of the San Blas neighborhood. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and furnished with lots of interesting and hand-made pieces. The kitchenette and bathroom were perfect for our needs, and the hot shower was great after all of the hiking we did in the Sacred Valley. After a couple of days Irene replaced our towels and offered to have a cleaning lady clean the room. She also gave us great recommendations for the city and surrounding area.
I'd highly recommend Nawin Cusco to anyone visiting the city!
Illa was not in the city but her mom Irene was there to help us and she was a great host. The apartment has everything a couple needs. They offered a cell phone what was very helpful, specially to get in contact with Juan Carlos, a taxi driver the host recommended. He picked us up at the airport and was useful in other moments of our trip. Wifi was good. The apartment building/house is lovely with a nice garden and view of Cusco. The location is good but is in a hill, around 10-15 minutes from the main square. To get down was ok, but to come back we recomend taking a taxi, that costs 5 soles($2). So it was not a problem for us. We totally recomend staying in this apartment!
Nawin Cusco was a perfect place to stay after we landed in Cusco. The studio is well appointed, comfortable and set in a quiet garden. The hosts were very helpful and respectful. The area of San Blas is great, lots of restaurants, cafes and a short stroll to the main square. Highly recommended!

About the Host, Ñawin Cusco
Creemos que una de las mejores formas de conocer un lugar es evitando hospedarse en hoteles. La experiencia no es la misma si mientras conoces el mundo, "vives"en una casa local sin renunciar a tu independencia y comodidad. Viajar de esta forma permite conocer rincones que no aparecen en las guías turísticas, experimentar de cerca el ritmo de vida local y sentirse como en casa.
En Ñawin, mi esposo y yo haremos todo lo posible para que tu paso por Cusco sea único y tengas mucho más que contar que miles de fotos. La tranquilidad de nuestros apartamentos te permitirán descansar, recargar energías en nuestro soleado jardín e inspirarte, como todo buen viaje debe ser.
We believe that one of the best ways to know a place is avoiding hotels. The experience is not the same if mine while you discover the world you stays in a local house, without sacrificing your independence and comfort. Travelling like this allows to know places that are not in the guidebooks, experience the local lifestyle and, at the same time, feel at home.
In Ñawin we will do everything possible to make your visit to Cusco unique for you to have much more to tell that thousands of photos. The tranquility of our apartments will allow you to relax, recharge your energies in our sunny garden and inspire yourself, like any good trip should be.
